Mangas, Yantras Y Otras Cosas

MANGAS*, YANTRAS* Y OTRAS COSAS

2009 to present

"Mangas, Yantras & Otras Cosas" serie started in 2009 in my Besançon studio's. It is printed mainly in monotypes and 5 editions of 15 prints, acrylic silkscreened on white, cream or gray B.F.K. Rives paper, 10''x10''.
The print's images come mostly from Japanese mangas sexual cartoons, Hindus Yantras meditations drawings and genetics patterns from archaic cultures.

*Mangas : Japanese's comics, mostly depicting sexually explicit or pornographic scenes. They came traditionally from the Shunga erotics art drawing from the 19 century woodblock printing masters as Hokusai, and Utamaro etc.

*Yantra : symbols or geometric figures, traditionally used in Eastern mysticism to balance the mind or focus it on spiritual concepts. The act of drawing or concentrating on a yantra is held to have spiritual, astrological or magical benefits in the Tantric traditions of the Indian religions, creating a kind of cosmic connexion.
